area you'll find lots of paddling places. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Berlin, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.

a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. Whitewater paddling here in the White Mountains is a great experience. There's camping available near Magalloway River.
